hello and welcome to the must go out so in this week's program we'll be exploring the magnificence of both so i think it's up to six years the main stage of the historical landmark has been dogged but now it's going to ring chandeliers a shining once again so joining lots of anger is as we explore the historical and magnificent building that fuses its classic original designs with modern technology states craft and high tech facilities as the main cultural symbol of russia the bolshoi theatre has finally returns to its glory striking day or night illuminated
exterior now shines proud of the years of being covered by scaffolding canvas and other building materials it took six years and billions of rubles but finally the historic bolshoi theatre is reopened to nurture and showcase the present and future a fresh and international talent. watched by millions in russia and around the world the opening dollar performance in october was an exclusive invitation of the event as well as various political figures international celebrities and russian ballet and opera veterans the heads of milan's the skull theatre vienna state opera and london's covent garden opera house are among the first high profile guests to officially visit the newly reopened theater the bolshoi doesn't translate to marge or grant. the company was founded in seven hundred seventy six by russian prince peter little
soft an english entrepreneur. michael maddox following a decree by empress catherine the great seven hundred eighty the construction of the first theater was completed it was destroyed by fire a reconstructed several times the newly reopened main building of the bolshoi we see today looks exactly as it was back in eight hundred fifty six when it was opened to mark the carnation of the empress alexander the second back then and they quickly became not only the temple of arts but also a place where important state events wow stood. after the revolution it served as a political gathering place for the bullshit party and during world war two it was bombed by the nazis and suffered considerable damage nevertheless the main building hadn't undergone any major renovation in over a century so when it was closed in two thousand and five the building was in critical condition literally falling apart but now after restoration which ranks as the most meticulous and expensive in the history of theater the bolshoi is finally
taken for business. inside the theater the entire space was stripped from the bottom up the work proved more challenging than expected and a series of deadlines were set and missed the budget went over the initial figure and the opening night was delayed several times so was it worth the wait and is it money well spent. i think it certainly state of the art for the performers. the reception areas have been magnificent they restored gives you an absolutely wonderful feeling that. the acoustics are very good in the hall. it's very encouraging to see. a city where the arts culture take an absolutely major place in. public policy clearly no expense to be spared to make this place state of the art one of the finest theaters
and europe. in the stone age it's very encouraging to see that something else and very high priority there was a way a long time you consider for a lot of effort and and it's absolutely beautiful it shows our friend the boss she is it shows all the bravado all the coliform. and the dancers so i think it's absolutely perfect why as a foreigner when you think of moscow it's one of the things that you think of. it's one of the most famous landmarks and so for us really interested to go inside and see what it's like to see the striking interiors with your own eyes is quite something you really feel as if you're back in the ground times of the russian empire the designs here are breathtaking hundreds of spruce with anil's were imported from the austrian alps to replace those ripped out by the bolsheviks. so decorations were also remade from scratch in
a special look shop in moscow ministry. this is the other whitehall located just about the entrance of the theater over twenty billion rubles were allocated to the renovation of the theater that's around seven hundred million dollars vast sums of money were spent on new additions like escalators lifts hydraulics backstage as well as a complete overhaul of the structure and interior designs the frescoes in vast quantities of gold leaf were placed and i even heard various materials were even washed with vodka and polished this girl tells. the bolshoi has been associated with ballet from its beginnings. will flame a swan lake premiered on its stage on the fourth of march eighteenth seventy seven of the staples of the bolshoi repertoire include tchaikovsky sleeping beauty and the nutcracker adams g.'s lp coffee s romeo and juliet leanne's spartacus the theatre is also known for its opera productions of course.
oh. this season which is the two hundred thirty six and the boss was history teaches such classical performances as borders cordon off common and toss just to mention just a few the company tours a lot being an important source of cultural for stage and the bolshoi also collaborate with the world's most famous the it is. the sky is the first international gas company on the bolshoi's newly reopened main stage and an impressive exhibition of costumes and italian theatre is displayed in the foyer as possible because they're sure the relationship and collaboration between the two theaters has a long history in the past century our opera singers went to training at the scarlet dances from the scarlet came to practice at the bolshoi and now we don't only exchange companies who also work together in organizing museum exhibit.
you can see one of the several dance studios that are situated in the attic space of the bolshoi concentrating is an important part of any performers life and early morning classes are a must to keep up technique precision and strength as athletes in every possible way competition is rife in the industry and the opening of the new season means the world's eyes are on the performers too. it's a once in a lifetime experience for me it's. going out on to the stage and seeing it really. how big it is and how grand it is and how beautiful the restoration has been it's it's really once in a lifetime and. you know the only thing i hope is that i enjoy the experience because the pressure is on and you know i do demand
a lot from myself as an artist as do all artists i feel so i hope i will be able to. enjoy it you know and really kind of basking in the in the moment the bolshoi is in fact a repertory theater being that it rotates a number of different productions and popular they are the first few months of the faces calendar is sold out already. also is not just there it's a. complex everywhere you look there are hundreds of our dollars heard here the hallways of this stage is a rehearsal room the coated in the upper levels of. we can see around her so for an upcoming performance of sleeping beauty in the performers can get used to dancing and performing in the full cost more importantly they can adjust to the full sized
and the rake on the floor dancing on an angle is not a. microphone in hands the creative staff give directions to the dances problems are ironed out costumes sometimes adjusted and staging slightly changed with many children in this production everything is right several times and although discipline is apparent the still a sense the excitement and joy in the n. s rehearsals are on the way backstage teams groups are racing against the clock to meet various stand lines here we can see the wardrobe department just look at the wonderful detail and imagination that goes into these designs. hundreds of costumes
a needed for each production also by hand and made to measure for each performer. to the on stage area now the first thing i notice is that the stage of the bolshoi is actually flat this means that the space is fully flexible here a full stage with a rake meaning an angle and intricate design has been built on top of the original floor anything can be achieved looking up and the space seems to go on for ever the flies holding a lot of scenery here me thinks i see a golden palace when exploring the area behind the scenes you really see the vast technical side that goes into such theater productions the whole process is like a large factory and it can look like organized chaos when a ballet or opera is in full flight. i fortunately managed to be given a ticket for tonight's performance you can still feel the excitement in the air for
many including myself it's the first time they've stepped foot inside the historic building and the interiors do not disappoint. russia might be the largest country in the world but it has just one full of cultural emblems the bolshoi is indeed one of russia's greatest brands and being amongst the oldest most famous ballet and opera companies in the world is something people of any nationality should cherish . absolutely spectacular well fortunately that's that's how we have left on this week's program on the recently renovated ball so i'll see you again at the same time next week until then for me and the rest of the crew by now.

they've won. fingernails are busy being bitten in russia and indeed across the fifteen other euro two thousand and twelve qualified nations because the group stage draw for the games takes place later today in kiev richard on port his eye over the best and worst case scenarios for dick advocaat charges. the euro two thousand and twelve championships are drawing ever nearer for poland and ukraine with just over six months to go till the event eventually gets underway on friday the draw will take place in kieve and this will be the first major event for the host nations ahead of them holding the biggest ever sporting events their countries have ever seen sixteen national science will be in the hats and due to russia's impressive qualification campaign where they managed to top their group they'll be amongst the second seeded teams this is actually very important as fable avoid having to play the likes of germany italy and england all of whom have serious
aspirations of winning the tournament itself a fantastic scenario for the gov the cats men would see his sign drawn with poland sweden and the republic of ireland a group they would start a strong favorites to win however a different outlook would be if russia were to be drawn with the likes of spain portugal and france which would present a much tougher task to try and even qualify for the knockout stages no less russia will go into friday's draw full of confidence and one former head coach guus hiddink says he's been impressed with how his former team of children the other cards and i'm a fan of many people in our former russian forward because i have to be one of those are really angry in russia. that's why i'm happy that's why i'm happy with where they're the qualification they made and i will be a big supporter of the russian team and of dick and betty pulling in and they got from god they did and they did a good job by qualifying the dutchman did manage to get his turkey signs of
a finals but did give russia a massive helping hand by drawing against croatia in his final game in charge of the turks heating can sure that russia and not creation will go into the second part of seeded teams making for a potentially much easier draw however the sixty five year old says. the winning the european championships which i should be harder than winning the world cup she of course you're depending a bit on on a draw but i tell you what you see to all the teams in europe i think quality wise it's it's more profound then then the world cup hole in every whatever you go in in which what you are you will have will have three very strong opponents excitement is certainly building here in kiev and those finals are getting ever closer but the opening game kicking off in just over six months time this is where friday's draw will take place and here is powers of arts and russia will go about draw income for
the mood of the qualifying in style for the euro two thousand and twelve finals however there will be a few signs but pick up accounts many will want to avoid like the reigning champion spain and the netherlands i may be russia are able to get a favorable draw mazzone help bad hopes of trying to make it out of the group stages and perhaps even beyond richmond wolf we don't see a. big night ahead in ukraine or let's move to the hardwood where both of russia's representatives in the euro league have made it safely through to the top sixteen next kids on joining c.s.k. moscow there following a thirteen point victory over. it was the turkish visitors though who started the stronger faster i finish in the opening quarter twenty three twenty one ahead thanks to this three pointer by press than schubert unix though flipped the other on by the half time buzzer establishing a slender thirty five thirty four lead it was in the third whoever the host turned up the heat extending their advantage to eight points on the never looked back in
